Flux Metrics Affected
The Flux Metrics analyze the three primary metrics that affect revenue (traffic, conversion rate, and average gift). This experiment produced the following results:
0% increase in traffic
× 79.4% increase in conversion rate
× 0% increase in average gift
The headline that clearly articulated the value of the offer to the audience increased conversion rate by 79%. This is directly correlated to the heightened perceived value of the offer by stating the benefits to the person’s marriage as a result of the online course. It also increased clarity on what the online course would cover.
